Engineers interested in taking one of Marty Martin's classes are advised to register early. Martin is senior electrical engineer for Affiliated Engineers in Madison. Since 1981, his seminar, "Electrical Systems for Non-Electrical Engineers," in the Department of Engineering Professional Development, has been filled to capacity. The course has provided cross-functional training to more than 3,000 technical specialists. Martin is also an instructor in seminars involving lighting, electrical distribution, grounding, power quality, energy auditing, and developing comprehensive electrical specifications. He has consistently been rated an outstanding educator by seminar participants. In 1994, Martin presented lectures on power quality and demand-side management in five southeast Asian countries.

Martin earned his BS in electrical engineering from the University of Illiinois-Urbana in 1976. Since then, his extensive experience has made him an expert in the design of electrical systems including illumination, high voltage distribution, computer grade power distribution, emergency power, grounding, fire alarm, security and lightning protection.

Martin designed the electrical systems on projects including the Monona Terrace Convention Center and the Dane County Regional Airport, a host of corrections facilities, industrial buildings, laboratories and university projects. He recently wrote an article on grounding for Plant Services Magazine. He is currently working on a 900,000 square foot research center for the National Institutes of Health.

Martin, his wife Peggy and their two daughters enjoy living in rural Mount Horeb.
